The list below can aid help even new painters to get high quality results. Do these suggestions and you will not only be a good painter, but also, quicker and smarter, too.

1. Prepare the Surface

A painting job begins with the correct preparation of the surface to be painted on. This calls for tasks like scraping, sanding, patching and filling each hole, crack, dent, and surface errors. Such is not the most fun part of doing the painting job, but, rather, it is the most vital part. For a fact, there is no paint, on top of its cost, color, thickness, or manufacturer’s claims that will hide a pockmarked or cracked surface.

2. Tint the Primer

The task of priming walls and ceilings is important during painting a new drywall or painting over a dark shade of color. Take note, that it is just right to prime any time you paint. This job looks for three main functions. First, it stops stains from appearing through. Second, it permits a one-coat coverage on the paint itself. Third, it adds up on the paint adhesion, which lowers down blisters and peeling.

3. Choose Canvas Over Plastic

For a fact, plastic drop cloths allow a cheap way of guarding the floors and furnishings from paint spatters. It is a smart investment to use canvas. This is greatly durable and rip-resistant. It goes flat and shows lesser tripping hazard.

4. Get an Extension Pole

This time, do not use a stepladder. Instead, choose to use a telescoping extension pole to function as your paint roller. It comes in several lengths, which may reach up to 18 feet long. For a fact, the ones that reach from 18 to 36 inches is the right length to paint rooms bearing 8 to 9 foot tall ceilings.

5. Use a Paint Grid, Not a Tray

Doing rolling paint with the use of a paint tray is a wrong thing to do. A faster approach is to roll paint straight from a 5-gallon bucket with the use of a paint grid. If you don’t know, a paint grid is basically a rectangular, rigid metal or plastic screen that extends up to the rim of the bucket. 

6. Overnight Storage

After a long day of painting walls, it is not necessary to clean your paintbrushes and paint-roller sleeves. Instead, basically remove the excess paint, then wrap these using plastic food wrap. If there is a need to do so, double up the plastic to protect the rollers with any air, then put the wrapped brushes and roller sleeves in a refrigerator to maintain their freshness.

Samuel Leeds Buys Shares In Property Tribes; Says He Wants To Make It Better

People in UK property circles may be familiar with the very public dispute between former MTV presenter, property investor, and community manager of the company Property Tribes, Vanessa Warwick, & property investment trainer and owner of the company ‘Property Investors’, Samuel Leeds; as Leeds has accused Warwick of assisting with racism and discrimination against ethnic minority tenants. In recent news, Samuel Leeds was reported to have bought a 35% share of the company Property Tribes, making him officially now a person of significant control at Property Tribes.

Warwick established Property Tribes to accumulate wisdom from various property owners and landlords to create a place of guidance for people in the industry to do business better. According to the company,

“We wanted to create a free use, safe, and agenda-free place for landlords to get information from a “hive mind”, not a singularity, so that they could learn and grow their property business.”

However, in one of his recent videos, Samuel Leeds pointed out blatant support of racism in some of the advice coming from Warwick herself. As one of the landlords asks on the forum – if they would be implicated by the race discrimination laws in the UK for refusing tenancy to Bangladeshi families as the landlord is not fond of the smell of their staple food, curry; Vanessa Warwick herself is seen advising against mentioning the reason for said refusal, thus averting the legal repercussions altogether.

In the video, Leeds points out several more situations where Warwick has behaved in a racist manner. In fact, she has become a new advisor on the panel of the UK’s Property Redress Scheme and has been under criticism in their forum as well for supporting discrimination against ethnic minorities.

Warwick also expressed strong disapproval of Leeds as a property trainer citing the reason that his students came from the “vulnerable” demographic. Leeds called out the racist mindset in this reasoning, as in reality, his students predominantly come from ethnic minorities and don’t fall in the “vulnerable” category. He began drawing attention to the issue over his YouTube channel and his website, and ended up facing severe disparagement from Warwick and her followers. Leeds finally sued Warwick for defamation and she brought a counter lawsuit for six-figure damages.

In an attempt to put an end to the battle once and for all, Samuel Leeds reports to have bought a share, 35% to be exact, of the company, Property Tribes. Even though he is only a minority shareholder and will have limited control, Leeds believes he can make a difference in “cleaning up the company” and reduce racism in the forum.

He jokingly adds,

“Because they trolled me, I wanted to at least get paid… Like Michael Jackson did to Eminem.”

Leeds pledges that any money he makes off this transaction will be donated to charitable organisations that tackle racism and online bullying. In addition, Leeds will donate an extra £50,000 to organisations that fight hatred in the UK. With this move, he is determined to take a strong stand against all discriminations in the property sector or any other industry.
